Sustainabilty, carbon footprint, eco friendly are words that we are seeing on a minute by minute basis.
Sometimes, we just need to put the brakes on, engage the brain and just study for a moment what this really means and where we should put our hard earned money to achieve the best sustainable results.
I love Tshirts having recently qualified as a PADI Openwater Diver, I spend most of my time in one between doning my wetsuit, waiting for the dive boat or collapsing on the beach afterwards after my tranquil dives.
Only trouble I find with TShirts and Tee’s they are all a bit samey.
Then I found these guys BEACHESANDSEA.com and quirky is not the word! Whacky is more like it.
What does this have to do with sustainability you may ask?
Buy One, Get One Tree weekend – Wait read that again!
Of the 1 billion items of clothing made each year, almost 40% of all production is never utilised. This means a truck load of textiles waste will go straight to landfill, every second. You should consider that climate change is because of neglect like this. CO2 pollution occurs as part of the process of making things.
That’s why BeachesandSea and their partner make things differently. Their products and packaging are made from natural materials, not plastic.Every product that they make is designed to be sent back to themwhen it is worn out, then new products are created from the material they recover, so the cycle itself is renewable.
Then at various weekends all their orders are totalled up and for every order a new tree is planted.
